A Blackduch High School student was named the winner of the 2023 Youth Tour Essay Contest from Paul Bunyan Communications.
Michael Van Horn is an 11th grader at Blackduck High, and he’ll attend the 2023 Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. from May 31-June 4.
The trip features a comprehensive overview of the telecom industry, allowing youth to meet with members of Congress, as well as tours of the nation’s most historic sites.
“The FRS Youth Tour is a unique opportunity for a local student from our area to visit Washington D.C. to gain a better perspective on how regulatory decisions impact our cooperative and rural areas,” said Paul Bunyan Communications’ Brian Bissonette.
“They will also get a chance to see a lot of historic sites in our nation’s capital!”
Michael is the son of Ashley Nelson and Michael Van Horn.
